BMC bulldozes Kangana Ranaut’s ‘illegal office’ in Mumbai; actress says ‘this is what fascism looks like’

Mumbai: Trouble mounted for Kangana Ranaut when the Shiv Sena-controlled Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) on Wednesday started demolishing “illegal alterations” at the Mumbai office of the Bollywood actress. The 33-year-old actor is scheduled to arrive in Mumbai from Himachal Pradesh later today.
In the meantime, Kangana Ranaut’s lawyer has filed a plea in the Bombay High Court against the BMC’s demolition drive at the actress’ property. The hearing will take place at 12.30 pm today.
Accompanied by a police posse, a team of the BMC H-West Ward officers reached the office with JCBs, bulldozers, and other heavy equipment, and started the demolition work shortly after 11 am.
Famous for her no-holds-barred approach, Ranaut tweeted pictures of the BMC workers demolishing certain areas of her office. “Pakistan…#deathofdemocracy”, captioned the 33-year-old Queen actor.
“I am never wrong and my enemies prove again and again this is why my Mumbai is POK now,” said Ranaut in another tweet. Notably, it was her previous tweet in which she compared Mumbai to Pakistan-occupied Kashmir that had drawn the ire of Shiv Sena leaders, especially Sanjay Raut.
Ranaut also tweeted: “There is no illegal construction in my house, also the government has banned any demolitions in Covid till September 30, Bullywood watch now this is what Fascism looks like”.
In a series of tweets earlier today, Ranaut compared her ‘Manikarnika Films’ office at Pali Hill in Bandra West to ‘Ram Temple’ and BMC to ‘Babur’. She also claimed that she was being targeted by the Maharashtra government because of her fight with the Shiv Sena.
Meanwhile, the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai responded to the “allegations” in the reply submitted by Ranaut’s lawyers and called them “baseless”.
“After receipt of the notice, you continued the work…So, the notice structure as mentioned in the notice is liable for forthwith demolition at your risk, cost and consequences,” said the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai.
The demolition work will reportedly be completed today itself.
Earlier today, the BMC had pasted a second notice outside her bungalow, apprising her of the action the civic body was set to take. The BMC had yesterday filed a `caveat’ in a local court, saying it should be heard first if the actress challenges a stop-work notice issued to her.
In another development, the Maharashtra government had yesterday announced that the Mumbai Police will investigate allegations made by the actress’ former boyfriend Adhyayan Suman that she took drugs. (Source Times Now News)
